Clutch Slave

Squeaky back brake? Hard to control at 30mph/40kph?

Hi 'gab1'

Buy the Oberon clutch slave.

Mounting plate? I don't know what that is. Could you explain, please?

I havn't noticed any cluth slip during the 40000 km I owned my 990 SMt -10. In total it's 57000 km on the ODO.

My slave failed last weekend on a ride. Had to turn back home halfway through and bee-line it on the highway to avoid shifting more than necessary. By the time I pulled into my garage, the clutch barely worked anymore.

A quick search found the plethora of clutch slave hints. Pulled it, it has the classic symptoms (and 28k miles on the bike which sounds exactly the end of the OEM slave's life).

Will be ordering an oberon.

Ok, I better preempt and order mine.

I changed the clutch fluid a few months ago. It was filthy. I flushed it a few times.

Just ordered the oberon slave and the new backing plate (why not, right?).

My Oberon arrived just as I was typing. I'm also trying to source the Magura 163 10.5mm master rebuild kit. The only dealer I can find is in Australia and won't have any in stock for another month.
